Should recreational marijuana shops be allowed to be next door to each other? It is a question being raised by Denver City Councilman Paul López, as he proposes five amendments to the law regarding recreational marijuana.
Colorado voters approved the use and sale of recreational marijuana in November 2012. However, lawmakers in different cities are still working on rules surrounding the process. López is proposing five amendments that would, among other things, require that recreational marijuana shops not be within 2,500 feet of each other.
